Dash send directly from coinbase worked

Coinbase only supports withdrawals to transparent Zcash addresses.

Initially, Coinbase will support deposits from both transparent and shielded addresses, but only support withdrawals to transparent addresses.

These are ZEC addresses that start with “t”. Incognito receiving/shield addresses start with “z” – they are completely shielded (i.e. not transparent).

You will need to first withdraw from Coinbase to a Zcash wallet that has shield-address support (sending to “z” addresses), then send to the Incognito shield address. Here is a list of Zcash wallets - https://z.cash/wallets/
